Csnwashington.com. The capitals defenseman Tom party was officially were called from Hershey and is on the roster to start the season at 35 year old hasn't played in an NHL game in over two years. Brooks light is not on the roster but can be activated at any time meanwhile. They Qassam landed in Tampa for tomorrow night's opener and to say they're anxious to get started well it would be an understatement.

Well I'm excited for them lamb a -- mope when they're excited. You know it's been a long time in. And so we've talked to -- so many times been a tough environment for everybody. And but its back you know is behind is -- looks to enjoy the hockey.

I feel ready in terms of my body and handling the puck and all that kind of stuff put them. The stuff -- recent rants and think -- on both sides and that comes from just learning real learning the system and and that execution that sets easy tough when when you're under pressure and actually making the plays it's easier practice so I would feel better now but it will be. Providence that -- most crisp game nursing.

Of course it has started to have them back so with the hockey season returns Alan may. Our capitals insider so nice to see your -- we've missed you over the last eight months as we have mr. hockey is well. Unless some of us some changes coming out for Washington avenue coach Adam -- now. Every team in the division is coming back with just a week to get ready but they have coaches and they've been used to what is out of -- going to be up against to implement his system.

While the biggest thing is just getting the players to play and energy and that and -- system and get after the -- the biggest thing that he's going to do that dale hunter didn't do -- Bruce Boudreau. He wants to implement an identity of how they play every single shift. And the best way to do you can't really do it 56 days of practice. It's got to be during the game and after the first game showing the video. But it's going to be an up tempo system and it's something that's a lot easier to learn that's been playing without the puck just sitting back all the time. They're going to be a pressure team that's going to be. The -- watch.

Prices since it's gonna go more towards the offense everybody's kind of speculating that Alex Ovechkin is gonna return to the form into the -- that we know what scoring a lot of goals. Do you believe you are you buying into that that -- is gonna return to form under I would system.

Absolutely adding I think is already playing in the cage Al he's got a leg up on a lot of players in the league but -- can relate to him better than any coach that he's had here. He's had success in the NHL as an offensive player. And he's going to be able to show Alexander some great little things to do on the power play. That helps these -- flight of the -- the last few years because Adam with a coach there. But just showing a word of position myself not to try to do everything himself and he's going to be coaching it back from the -- better for her. Pro basketball so I think whoever gets the -- waffling on that line night in and night out is gonna help Alexander played better too because the coaching staff is gonna work with all three players. To make that a really potent number one line. Csnwashington.com.

  1. Caps look out of sync opening night

    Sun, 20 Jan 2013

    Csnwashington.com. The biggest thing that I saw an opening night was the fact that the capitals. Were loose defensively they have players that were skating that we're somewhat passive. And I think it's all worth thinking about how to play wordplay how to get in position a lot of players also out of sync offensively when they had the puck on their stick. The biggest thing that they can do in the next game is make sure that they're getting as many pucks to the front of the net as possible and it got to play a lot more speed they do not have the far. That have to be that signature for the team at that point you're going. Csnwashington.com.
